    You will never see strong gun control in terms of having people turn in their legally owed firearms. The reason you will not is because the democrats realize that if they were ever able to confiscate private citizens legal guns then democrats would never win another election.

AR 15 style rifles are extremely popular with CIVILIAN police. The twit who wrote that article doesn't even address that fact-Firearms that are useful for CIVILIAN police to use for self defense against armed criminals are EQUALLY useful for OTHER civilians to use in the same way.
    I keep a double barrel shotgun for home defense. Looking at those two barrels gives an intruder something to think about.

    This is not just a personal opinion because I donít like guns. Large studies have shown this.

    Bravo!

    But actually, it's more like large studies conducted by liberal psychologists with a agenda.

    My side arm never once made me seek conflict, hate, fear, or otherwise.

    I have a FnH SLP-1 shotgun. 9 round magazine. Might not look as intimidating as a double barrel (I was a pretty highly ranked SASS "cowboy" shooter at one time and was good with the old double barrel btw) but far more effective against multiple invaders.

    When all you have as an answer, for every problem, is more government and less freedom, we end up with more government, less freedom, and the many problems remain.

    I just loaded about 300 .300 Blackout subsonics with Hornady 220 AMAXs yesterday. I don't know from intimidating, but I do know what I like.
    Individuals can not be reasoned out of beliefs they were not reasoned into.
